The Phoenix was dirty, poorly equipped and nothing worked

When we first arrived we were shocked at how tired and dirty the boat was. We were very disappointed as the boat is advertised as being quite luxurious. It most certainly is not! There was no pressure in the shower so we couldn’t have a shower after our dive. We had to get on our knees to even get a dribble and the water was cold. The ladder was broken and it came away from the boat while I was climbing out of the boat which Bruised my ribs, my husband also cut his legs on the ladders. The kitchen was filthy and the skipper who was also the chef has definitely been on the boat too long (4 years) he was cooking with just an apron on so he was very sweaty which wasn’t very hygienic. He also slept on the sofa in the kitchen area. The dive equipment was poorly maintained, air leaking out of at least three cylinders. The diving was good and both the dive guides were great but the boat was huge disappointment. We were also told when we got on the boat that we were expected to pay $300 each ! Not at all worth the money!!

Incredible experience

There was a good mix of dive sites (reefs, sharks, wrecks), with flexibility to see different ones, depending on weather conditions. The crew was very good at their job. The dive masters were clearly well trained, and knew the dive sites and local sea life in-and-out. The captain is also an excellent cook. We never had the same dish twice, and the food was all creative, and just what you need after a day of multiple dives. The crew were quite friendly, and made us feel at home during the whole trip. The catamaran is a great boat to dive from. It is spacious, provides a stable platform, and offers easy entry and exit from the water.

Very skilled and knowledgeable crew, world class dive sites, comfortable boat

Our private dive trip!

No other guests! Just got lucky that others cancelled. Great divemaster who really cared to make the dives varied and interesting. He also handled all our gear. Captain with excellent boat handling skills, very considerate about doing loud things (filling tanks, running engine to charge batteries) during our dives so surface time was calm and quiet. Comfortable double beds. Three real meals per day.

TOP Tauchsafari + TOP Boot

My best safari and dive holiday the past years ( 280 logged dives) The catamaran is super comfy and familiar, u feel like at home after short time. the cabines are nice and clean, Oleg the captain is a excellent chef, the food was super nice during the whole stay. and it was really a familiar cosy atmosphere during the whole stay.the boat has a special flair and its a really special dive safari experience ( not to compare to other dive boats as its small and very private feeling here) its all super individual, the diving is super comfy - straight from the room into water. from the back with 2 entrance with a giant step. Simon the dive instructor was super professional dive guide, we had 17 wonderful dives and i can just recommend to dive with this guy. swiss at its best. we got luck with visibility and the UW world in bahamas is really intact and colorful. Bahamas is my new maldives. We had wonderful sailings in-between nassau-exumas and spend super nice evening up at the starboard, i will never forget this trip and hope to come back soon to Bahamas!
